Boxster S grinding noise on startup

My Boxster S has recently started making a growling noise on startup. Lasts just a few seconds and only happens if the car has been sitting for at least a number of hours

Is this a sign of the dreaded IMS bearing failure? 


Any idea on the cost to replace the bearing -- it's a Tiptronic BTW. 

I'm going to reach out to my regional PCA chapter as well in the search for a good shop to diagnose/repair this

Thanks, Carlos
